I love using alliteration to help drive my monthly reading goals. Last year, I did Sequel September with all my fantasy sequels and it was really successful! I want to replicate that success and read a few more tomes this month with some of the fantasy series I need to catch up on. Of course there’ll be romances and thrillers peppered along the way!
What fantasy sequels am I reading this month?
📚 Blood & Honey is the sequel to: Serpent & Dove
A witch and a witch hunter bound in holy matrimony? Sounds like my kind of disaster. I don’t know how this series is continuing but if I get a good romance again I’ll be happy.
📚 Storm of Locusts is the sequel to: Trail of Lightning
I’m hoping this sequel gives me a little more than the previous book did. I really like the Indigenous inspired magic system and the monster hunting, but I want to connect a little more to the characters.
📚 The Traitor Queen is the sequel to: The Bridge Kingdom
I think I’m most excited for this sequel. A princess bride that’s a former spy? Turned traitor to her own family? Has to save her husband? Yes, yes and yes!
What thrillers am I reading this month?
📚 One by One
I’ve been wanting to read one of Ruth Ware’s thrillers for a long time now. A snowed-in retreat where you can’t trust your coworkers sounds so enticing to me.
📚 Paul Tremblay
My type of thrillers usually don’t involve Zombies (I get bad nightmares about Zombies!) But a pregnant woman travelling cross-country, fighting for the life of her unborn child whilst trying to avoid deadly challenges… sounds a little like Bird Box!
📚 What Lies Between Us
I’ve been making my way through John Marrs backlist. So far I’ve read 2 thrillers by him and both read like those good episodes of Black Mirror that are a little morally ambiguous.
What romances am I reading this month?
📚 All Stirred Up
I’ve been loving chef/food related romances recently. Rivalling restaurant, former protégés and ex-boyfriends in Scotland, sounds like the perfect recipe of a great romance.
📚 Kiss My Cupcake
I was really lucky to win this enemies to lovers romance about two competing local businesses!
📚 A Touch of Darkness
I haven’t read a Hades and Persephone romance in such a long time, so I’m really excited to start a new retelling. Hopefully I enjoy it because there’s several books in this series and I need my Persephone and Hades fix.
